I like the shot but I think the tilt is a little too much. Other than that I love it.

Love how someone thought this was one of my shots, then the next person to comment on it was me..

Great wedding shot, but still not overkeen on that angle.. seems a lot of people were divided on the tilt. Should of finished a few notches higher IMHO.

Nothing short of a phenomenal wedding photo. A little dark in the midtones, but a terrific job!

I immediately recognized the hood ornament as being the same as one of my challenge entries. Except the one I photographed was on a tan car. Oh, yeah, cute couple as well, but the car is awesome.

A fantastic B/G portrait! ...but I have mixed feelings about the angle. Overall quality is top notch though. Good luck.

Very nice image. It's good to see a few "great" images. This is a perfect reflection of your abilities as a photographer.

Not overly fond of the extreme tilt but a lovely clear photo that I am sure the bride and groom love.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 06:02:00 AM
As a wedding photographer I can appreciate this as a classic shot.. maybe a bit too much tilt on it for my tastes. However, because it is a wedding shot its probably getting marked down quite harshly.. 6

This looks like a Simms image to me...Beautiful capture! 9

nice wedding shot, The tilt is great. nice exposure and the right amount of softness in the image. 7

The extreme tilt seems pointless and a major distraction. It destroys any chance of framing effectively and simply destroys the otherwise fine quality of the this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:52:36 AM
Nice wedding portrait. I love the car!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:19:30 PM
Nice shot, I don't think the tilt works though

Great composition and clarity. Really like the tilt.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:46:56 PM
They probably really like this image. It's so well done. I like the car and even the tilt. Not sure that she's kissing his mouth.. .but that's up to them, I guess. :)

nice emotion filled shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:52:54 PM
Great shot, cute couple. The tilt may be a bit much for me, and it appears he's almost missed her mouth! :) The car in the background makes this super classy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:52:15 PM
I like your idea, nice but perhaps less of an angle imo . Good luck !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:13:11 PM
Great wedding shot. I like the tilt, I think it works well with all the lines present. Nice job.

No she's not!.....oh, you mean the car. Angle makes it look like he's falling into her. Well done. Nice touch.

Very nice wedding portrait. If this was from a wedding shoot, I'm sure the couple was really happy with your work.

Nice car. not much of a kiss. I guess the angle was for the car. not much going on with kiss.

I like the use of a tilted horizon on this shot... makes is unique, and adds to the composition.

Very delightful! Warm and real - they don't seem to know you're there at all. And I hope that was their "getaway" vehicle - way cool car if it was!

Interesting use of the tilt... I like it because it fills the frame with interesting stuff, but I don't like that it makes me turn my head sideways :)

Their love would last a lifetime, or so they insisted. They were young, and vigorous, and full of happiness and joy. Their future was bright, their present built on solid foundations, their past a thing of wonderful memory.

Yet love has a funny way of defying even the best of our intentions, and a lifetime is a long time indeed.

Yet it never hurts to try, and the journey, no matter how long, shall be filled with story and adventure.
